    Having a grand opening or ribbon cutting ceremony? Let the Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce help you celebrate!

    A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is an important part of your overall marketing and advertising plan and is a great way to kick off the grand opening of your business. It offers an opportunity to meet members of the business community and get acquainted with your neighbors and Chamber members.

    The Elgin Area Chamber will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony complete with up to five pairs of giant scissors and ribbon for our Chamber members. We’ll take photographs of your event for publicity and prosperity. We’ll invite our Chamber Ambassadors, volunteers, members, and elected officials encouraging them to attend the event. We can put you in touch with other Chamber members that can provide services such as catering, publicity, & special events.

    As a member of our Chamber and as the host of the event, we suggest that you have food and refreshments, giveaways and/or raffle prizes and decorate if you care to do so. We’ll want you to speak at the ceremony to tell us about your business services & introduces the staff to the people attending the event.

    We enjoy celebrating business and welcome the opportunity to plan your event with you.  We do try and schedule these events at least three weeks out so we can coordinate with everyone’s busy schedules.
